I don’t aim for Amber unless a client prefers that due to insomnia , but I mainly cut 2 weeks after 40% milky and I did an experiment hanging a plant with the root system in tact , I was pretty impress with the trichomes production after trying that , it was just something I wanted to try cause I always snip the branch from the stalk like most when curing . It’s just an option , but always experiment until you find what works best for you’re needs . Another thing I learned in flower , after week 5 in flower I start removing fan leaves each day in stages which helps build bigger bud weight also but don’t go crazy cause you can still stress the plant but ah lil stress is great for a finish smoke , I think it pumps up the potency at 1% in my opinion , but at the start of week 5 I pluck the fan leaves instead of cutting from fourth of fifth node up to the top so the colas can get more light to put on more weight . It’s kinda like the 3 pounds per light technic , I can tell a significant difference in my experience . But in your next grow get you a plant for complete experimenting and see how it work for you oldtimer , do some reading on bud development in mid and late flowering and push your plant to a stress level but not to the point of hermaphrodite , and let me know how you’re results came out okay Sir , I be in the shadows weekly , just don’t comment or post to much cause I let others learn on they level and don’t want cause any friction. But I’m super proud of your accomplishments , and once you Finish that I’ll talk to you on how to push auto flowers to a big return in 85 days …Blessings keep it organic clean and green , Happy Growing youngin!
